If you have ever been late for a meeting or even work, yet you have a presentation to make, there is nothing to worry about thanks to the new partnership which will bring Skype and Office 365 integration to cars. In this way, drivers will still be able to make that last-minute change on their presentation as they head to work or even hold a Skype meeting just in case things got a little worst.
The news of this partnership was announced during the CES 2016 and according to the automotive technology firm Harman, it is a dawn of a new era as far as productivity is concerned. Now that drivers will have unprecedented access to Office 365 programs via intelligent personal assistant software, completing tasks with no need to compromising their safety will be a very easy thing.
Drivers will be able to complete the tasks that include scheduling meetings or appointments, listening to as well as responding to email messages, join conference meetings automatically with no need to provide a physical phone number or even passcode. Furthermore, one will find it a lot easier when it comes to managing tasks and events all through the day.
A new direction for Microsoft Corporation
Microsoft has made its first major step in 2016 and it is a big one. Whether this is the start of the company’s quest to join the self-driving car industry that Google is already part of and Apple is reportedly working on, or not is still unknown. But given that this is the first time the Windows OS maker has licensed its software for use on the automotive turf, it could just be indicating a new era for the company.
Not everything will be accessible when the driver is driving, unless he wants to be pulled over for trying to work on a PowerPoint presentation when driving. In addition, certain services such as Skype will not be available unless the car is in self-driving mode or parked.
The automotive company has mentioned nothing with regards to when this Office 365 Suite and Skype will be availed in its cars, but this will probably happen across the entirety of 2016.
